After chief minister and some ministers, more MLAs of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party in Manipur dashed to New Delhi on Saturday, reportedly after they were summoned by Union home minister Amit Shah.

The Union home minister reportedly called the state chief minister N Biren Singh, ministers, MPs and MLAs of the state as part of his series of meetings with leaderships of three states neighbouring Nagaland.

Whether the home minister’s meeting with leaders of the three states was related with consultation on recently concluded Naga peace negotiation or to review law and order of the states witnessing people’s movement to safeguard their territorial integrity could not be confirmed from the state government for the time being.

State chief minister N Biren Singh along with Speaker of Manipur Legislative Assembly Y Khemchand, works minister Th Biswajit, education minister Th Radheshyam and Rajya Sabha MP Ksh Bhabananda have travelled  to the national capital on Friday afternoon.

Amid the reports of home minister calling all the Bharatiya Janata Party legislators, seven MLAs of Bharatiya Janata Party have dashed to the national capital today. Lok Sabha MP Dr RK Ranjan has also rushed to Delhi, sources said.

Even though some media reported that they were called by the Union minister to consult on the latest development of the Naga peace talk, some others reported that the MLAs of the ruling BJP dashed to Delhi to convey government’s stand on Manipur’s integrity to the Prime Minister and Union home minister.

As per the reports, Union home minister Amit Shah has begun consultations with chief ministers of the three states neighbouring Nagaland on the Naga peace negotiation.

However, a source here stated that Amit Shah called in chief ministers of the three states to the national capital to discuss the ongoing agitations related to the impending solution to Naga peace talks.

He had earlier consulted with chief ministers of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh, the reports said, adding that the meeting with state chief minister N Biren Singh was scheduled on Saturday evening.

Central government made a commitment to consult all stakeholders before signing final agreement with National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN I-M) but it is yet to be confirmed whether the consultations were related with the commitment or taking stock of law & order situation in the three states arising out of the concluded Naga peace talks.
